(Maldives declares state of emergency)

The Maldives Supreme Court has ordered the release of imprisoned opposition party MPs in the Maldives and also declared the disqualification of 12 opposition party members is invalid.

According to the court, if the MPs were given their posts back, current president of the Maldives, Abdulla Yameen would lose his designation.

Thus, he has not complied with the court order to release several politicians.

Government offices were brought under the control of the army and the police. The government advised the authorities not to accept the orders of the judges

The opposition parties have demanded that the United Nations and the world countries should look after the political turmoil.

Thousands of people marched in the streets as President Yameen had to resign.

In this situation, President Yameen has declared 15 days of the state emergency.

The Army has landed in the process of arresting opposition MPs. It is also announced that All the basic rights of citizens will be temporarily canceled.

In this case, 80-year-old former president Maumoon Abdul Gayoom was arrested by Maldives police.
